About the property

A family break or romantic time for two - Just perfect!

Number 2 is a beautiful stone cottage in secure private communal grounds with designated secure underground parking for two cars, a private hot tub on your balcony from which to enjoy stunning sea views and, if you can bear to drag yourself away, situated just a few meters from: the beach with its great mixture of sand and rock pools - perfect for all the family; the South West Coast Path; an 18 hole golf course; and a short distance from Looe, Polperro, Liskeard, and Plymouth.

Built just 10 years ago, with all the charm and appearance of a period property, but furnished to a high standard with all the luxuries of modern living contained within. At the end of your holiday you won't want to leave!

Situated in the perfect location, just 15 minutes from the A38 it is easy to get to by car or by train (St Germans train station is just 5 miles away by taxi). Whether you are looking for a family holiday, a romantic hideaway, just to get away from it all, or to do something active in the clean Cornish air, whatever your interests, Number 2 The Fish Cellars has it all:

For families with little ones: With discrete safety gates at the top of the stairs for Mum and Dad's peace of mind, a high chair so no one is excluded at meal times, a step, potty, toilet seat, travel cot and baby monitor are all on site so you don't have to bring yours or worry if you have forgotten something.

For families with older ones: The cinema room provides their own den, complete with a 55 inch screen TV, cinema sound system including DVD player, Xbox and PS2 games systems, as well as fast BT fibre wifi for connecting their own devices.

For golfers: With a striking views and rolling fairways, Whitsand Bay Golf Club is one of the most stunning cliff top golf courses in Cornwall. Laid by Fernie of Troon in 1905, this unique 18-hole golf course is designed for the holiday golfer as well as the serious club golfer and is situated just a 5 minute walk away.

For walkers: the SW Coastal Path passes immediately in front of the property. The South West Coast Path is England's longest way-marked long distance footpath (and one of the longest in the UK) and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles (1,014 km), running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, passing through Portwrinkle on its way to its end in Poole Harbour in Dorset.

For a Spa experience: With the leisure club (weekly membership available from the hotel) and beauty spa (open to non-residents) of the Whitsand Bay Hotel (rated 4* by guests on Trip Advisor) right next to the golf course and therefore just a few minutes walk away.

For those quite nights in: Curl up and take in the incredible sea views either from your very own balcony including its own hot tub (emptied and cleaned before every visit) or inside on the comfortable leather sofas with panoramic floor to ceiling windows, or if you just can't miss the next episode of your favourite soap enjoy it on the large TV whilst listening to the crashing waves from the open window.

For film night or that not to be missed footie match: Decamp downstairs to the cinema room, make yourself comfortable on the large comfortable sofa and immerse yourself in a DVD or switch to Sky Sport 1 or 2 and let the stunning 55 inch curved Samsung TV with cinema system sound immerse you in the game. With popcorn in hand and a glass of you favourite tipple it may be even better than being there!

For dog owners: Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome. Whether you want to walk for miles on the SW coastal path or just let your dog run off some energy on the beach, Number 2 provides the perfect base form which to explore. Please note that the council imposes some restrictions relating to dogs on some of the beaches in Cornwall during the summer months. You can find more information on this at .

With the choice of the hot tub, set at the perfect temperature, the table and four chairs on the balcony, or the comfort of the leather sofas within the lounge, it makes it the perfect place to relax at the end of a fun filled day, after you have put the children to bed.

Situated on the lower level with direct access to the car park.

Fully equipped with a large double sofa bed, large 55 inch TV with cinema sound and Sky Sports, Xbox and PS2 games systems and a table football table. This room has en-suite facilities including a shower with luxury steam sauna feature. This shower is the perfect place to clean up the children (or the dog!) after a fun day on the beach.

Next to the cinema room is also the laundry room complete with Bosch washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and iron. There is space for the clothes airer so you can leave clothes to air without cluttering up the living space.


The property is equipped with underfloor heating throughout all three floors so if you decide to enjoy the local beauty out of season you can be assured that Number 2 will be the perfect, warm, home from home to return to a the end of the day. In the evening if you hanker for a little extra there is a wall mounted gas fire to add either a little extra heat should you want it or just to provide a focal point within the room.


Number 2 is connected to the BT fibre optic network (what is often described as "super fast" broadband) and has good quality wi-fi capability on every floor.

Television Services:

There are large screen televisions in the lounge area and cinema room.

The cinema room has Freeview, catch-up and on-demand TV services as well as BT Sport and Sky Sports. A good selection of DVDs to play on the cinema system completes the package.

The lounge has Freeview, catch-up and on-demand TV services.


Number 2 is fully equipped with mains powered smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on each floor and separate smoke detectors in each of the bedrooms.

Emergency lighting torches are provided throughout the property.

Break glass fire points allow access to an emergency key for that door.

Each floor has a large fire extinguisher, rated for the risks in that area. Reflecting the attention to detail throughout the property, these are finished in a beautiful chrome finish so as not to detract from the luxury feeling of Number 2.

The heating system is subject to annual safety certification and the electrical appliances are also annually tested and inspected.

Other Information:

Arrival pack:

To get you off to a flying start you will find in the property on your arrival basic supplies of tea, coffee and sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, washing up liquid, dishcloths, etc.


The bedding and towels are all of the highest quality from the likes of White Company, Dorma and John Lewis.

Bathroom Consumables:

All of the bathrooms are stocked with luxury hand wash and shower gels from Cole & Lewis of London.

Car Parking:

Two dedicated, secure, underground parking just outside the Cinema Room access door, making unpacking on arrival quick and easy. No lugging heavy cases for miles.

Please Note: Access to the property is via a few steps both from the ground floor and cinema room level. This and the spiral staircase make the property unsuitable for those with limited mobility we are afraid.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Fish Cellars were the best holiday home I have ever stayed at. The hot tub was so peaceful and fun. It was a really nice hot tub and a really nice stay! We went crab fishing and we caught 7 or is it 8 - I don't know. It's a beautiful area and the beaches are just wonderful, so when you are staying here, make the most of it. It's amazing, it's crazy, I love it here.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location and beautiful house. Nothing better than watching the sunset from the hot tub on the balcony or taking a coastal walk to Tregantle beach. Our three young sons (7,5 and 1) all loved it as well and we felt from supported by the owner and local property manager. All in all a great place to stay and we’ll be back!

A great place stay.

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful property with amazing views. Finished to a very high standard. The perfect place to relax and wonderful places to eat for all budgets close by. As a self catering property it would have been helpful if there had been salt and pepper, olive oil and other basic provisions but otherwise faultless.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your time at No.2. We are sorry that you found there was no salt and pepper there on this occasion. This should have been there. We aim to have salt, pepper, tea, coffee, sugar, kitchen foil, cling film, baking parchment, kitchen roll, toilet roll, dishwasher tablets, kitchen cleaner, kitchen sponges and cloths, as well as hand wash and shower gels in place at the start of your stay - at least enough to get your holiday off to a smooth start.
